Traffic congestion from DHA-2 and DHA-5 along Islamabad Highway is creating severe frustration among the residents of the twin cities.
According to a media report, many residents are demanding action against the terrible traffic situation in the area. An anonymous lady, who picks up and drops off her kids at a local school, stated, “It takes me hours to get my kids to school and back home, and I’m tired of it.”
Likewise, some daily travelers blamed the Capital Development Authority (CDA) and Frontier Works Organization (FWO) for their poor project management. One resident called the activities “ill-conceived, haphazard, and chaotic.” He expressed his frustration with the administration’s inability to manage traffic aptly in this situation. “It’s unacceptable, and we’re suffering the consequences,” he said.
Another individual suggested suing authorities for the mental anguish that this traffic puts him through daily. Another resident pointed out:
Besides the inconvenience, the wear and tear of our vehicles due to the dug-up roads are causing us significant financial losses.
The Islamabad traffic police are also under fire due to traffic mismanagement. Despite mounting discontent, officials have not resolved the traffic bottleneck, leaving residents to wonder when the poorly performed project will end.

We are suffering from this situation since January. Every day we have to find/explore new way to go to DHA 2 and come back to DHA 5. CDA, FWO, Islamabad Traffic police and DHA management have been miserable in handling the situation. Today , due to rain the conditions have gone worst. Yesterday it took me two and a half hours to reach from Giga Mall to DHA 5.
Two monkeys can plan better than this good for nothing CDA.
I am facing this situation from last month. From Sihala pull to T Chowk as its 2-3 Km that takes hours now. There is no proper planning while making road. Road makers are running traffic on 1 way road. Traffic police also not stoping trucks before t Chowk or sihala pull. At morning time truck and small vehicles join together on one way road and creates mess. Everyone is enjoying the party and state is sleeping.
I can feel the misery and pain of residents commuting daily just imagine we people of Barakoh are facing this problem for last twenty years we do not have any traffic sense (keeping to your lane) break all traffic rules have no patience and are always in hurry. As a people we are morally at the lowest level fo not blame ICT police
The poor Project Management on Islamabad Expressway points out the possible corruption in this sector. Besides the severe mental stress, the wear and tear of the vehicles and damages are causing a big financial loss to the citizens. It normally takes several hours to cover few KMS distance. The authorities seems least interested to complete the project soon.
